The Vascular Birthmarks Foundation Dr. Linda Rozell-Shannon, PhD President and Founder

Yajaira Morales, United States (US), California

Hello, my name Yajaira Morales, my nickname is Yaya, and I was born with a birthmark that covers my whole left side of my body. It was very difficult in school with a lot of bullying. Growing up was very hard for me, but over the years I learned to love myself and who I am. Now I am happily married, have two wonderful daughters, and a career as a veterinary technician. My new passion now is to help others like me to tell them it going to be ok, and that we are beautiful and much more than our birthmarks.
